Skip risk checks

To skip risks checks for a certain payment request, send the skipRisk parameter set to true in the additionalData section of a payment request. In this case risk checks will still run, but the transaction will not be given a risk score.

This means that the results and effect of risk checks, in terms of velocity, shopper DNA, etc. will still be there, but the transaction will not be blocked. The result will look like no check has triggered and the risk score will be zero, but all the usual effects of running the risk system still apply.

This functionality requires additional configuration on Adyen's end. To enable it, contact the  Support Team.

      "value":20000,
      "currency":"EUR"
   },
   "reference":"Your Reference Here",
   "merchantAccount":"TestMerchant"
}
